Cloe Shasha is one of a small handful of curators behind all of your favorite TED Talks. As the Speaker Development Curator, she works to research, curate, and host speakers for the influential lecture-giving and story-telling platform. In essence, Shasha says, her role has her taking deep dives into speakers’ research to help them craft an 18-minute-or-less talk that gets across information with impact. “I get to learn about people’s ideas and philosophies and help them share their message with millions of people around the world through our global platform,” says Shasha. And while she works with a lot of people and crafts many talks, she says the most rewarding aspect of her job is “having the opportunity to leverage queer and other marginalized voices when we invite them to speak at TED.” As a queer woman herself, Shasha says being out is a privilege that allows her to be her full and authentic self in the workplace every day. “So much of my job involves communicating with other humans in a way that brings out their most authentic selves for the stage,” Shasha tells GO. “If I can be fully who I am as a queer femme Arab Jewish New Yorker, I am better at what I do.” Shasha currently lives in New York with her partner and enjoys “writing, dancing, music, neuroscience, the outdoors, hot sauce, throwing dinner parties, and building queer community.” —GP
